From fish to Ferraris: transporting cargo on the Norwegian coast
When it comes to transporting goods up and down the Norwegian coast, our ships are a vital link in the chain for coastal communities.
Since the inception of The Coastal Express in 1893, our mission has always been to connect villages, towns, and cities along the Norwegian coastline. For 130 years, we’ve transported the post, passengers, and freight that have helped families and businesses here not just survive but thrive.
Through the cargo we deliver, our ships are at the heart of important commercial and cultural exchanges. We carry the bountiful catches of fish from northern Norway to southern Norway. From there, high-quality Norwegian seafood is exported and enjoyed throughout the rest of Europe and the world.
When our ships return to the remote coastal communities of the north, they come bearing new and exciting goods from all corners of Europe and beyond, be it exotic fruit or fancy cars.
The list of cargo we bring to the coast goes on and on, covering a wide range of goods. For Per Anders though, there’s one item that really stood out: a brand new Koenigsegg sports car worth 7 million Norwegian Kroner. “I was ok watching over the car on the ship, but my colleague’s pulse was pretty high when driving it aboard,” he chuckles.
